Robotic percussion grooves via Wiimote

Arduino Music

Musical group Jazari consists of one human, a variety of percussive instruments, and a whole lotta solenoids. Patrick Flanagan directs his mechanical bandmates by way of two Wii remotes sending data via bluetooth over to Max/MSP software. Actual note data is sent out to Arduinos which handle all that solenoid switching seen above. Patrick provides a more detailed explanation of the setup for us gearheads. [via Create Digital Music]
